Airfix Henschel Hs-123 - Type 3 Logo - Bagged, 1/72, 136

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$18   

Still factory sealed. 1960s bagged kit with header. The Hs-123 was the Luftwaffe's first in- service dive bomber and was built by the famous locomotive maker Henschel. The '123 had been replaced by the start of WWII by the Stuka, but demand continued for the aircraft and they were of great use in Belgium and France. During the terrible weather of the Russian campaign, the HS-123 once again found itself in demand. When conditions were so bad that other aircraft could not fly, the Hs-123 would often be in the air. The sturdy construction and good flying characteristics made it a favorite among pilots.

Hawk Howard Ike Air Racer - One Piece Box Issue 1949, 1/48, 602

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$59   

Rare early one piece box issue from the 1949. Hawk was a very innovative model company that went into business in the 1920s with model aircraft made from wood with metal detail parts. Hawk also made ship and train models in this fashion. It is thought that the first injection molded aircraft kits in the United States were made by Varney in 1946, but they did not catch on quickly. Hawk was always an innovative and quality-driven company, and they took a gamble on injection molded kit well before they were popular. As early as 1946 they issued the 1/48 Curtiss R3C-1 with wheels. This may have been the first plastic airplane kit in the USA. Like Varney's Fleet Sub and PT-17, they were shunned by hobby dealers. Hawk persisted with the 'Evolution of the Jet' gift set in 1948. In 1948, they also issued the four racer kits - the Supermarine S6B, Gee-Bee, Howard Ike and Laird all in Acetate. The F-84G and Constellation were also issued but were the first Hawk kits molded in polystyrene. All were in the two-tone one-piece flip box or straight one piece box with opening ends like this one. This is the 1949 polystyrene issue. This model is molded in the correct glossy white with a unique early stand. The model was issued with instructions but did not come with decals. The instructions tell you that 'All license numbers are gold outlined in black'. The kit has never been started. The contents have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.
